1 John 4:7-11 NIV
[7] Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. [8] Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. [9] This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. [10] This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. [11] Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

This is the essence of a life of faith – that we love one another. That is what God does and the new commandment that Jesus gives us is simply that – to love like he does. This is radical, life changing, world-transforming love – pray for boldness and obedience in love!

What kind of love is this
That gave itself for me
I am the guilty one
Yet I go free;
What kind of love is this
A love I’ve never known
I didn’t even know his name
What kind of love is this?
